Sam Pilbrow & Family Support

We are reaching out to you and asking for your
support to financially help Sam and her 3 children, Mia 19, Keane 13 & Jax 7, through the most
devastating and difficult time they are facing. 

The most heartbreaking news on Friday 31st
August which absolutely none of us saw coming.
Nigel had tragically taken his own life.

Nigel was a devoted father and husband and
lived his life happily, engaging with family life as
any other father would.. 

We are all still in complete disbelief that this has

With Covid restrictions, we are struggling to get
Sam her family over to be by her side which she
desperately needs.

We need to lessen the burden of financial strain
from Sam. Being self employed means she will have no money coming in whilst she grieves her loss and needs to be there for her children. She still has the mortgage and bills to pay independently, family flights, quarantine fees, (which both are
extortionate) funeral/memorial costs  & family
living expenses. The family Life Insurance set up by Sam & Nigel leaves them not covered for any
payout at all due to the timing period in the
contract for this type of tragedy.

Nigel would be so incredibly proud of the brave decision Sam and the children have made today. They are donating Nigel's organs. What an
amazing special gift to pass onto to someone. A
light in this dark time and hopefully a huge help with this beautiful families healing. 

Nothing prepares you for the loss of a loved one,
especially when children are left behind without
their dear father, but if we can at least help their
mum to be with them, and worry a little less about
finances. It's something to make this horrendous
time for them a little easier. 

Thank you so much xx
